Brilliant!

by Seaking (WorldCat user published 2012-04-10) Excellent Permalink

Simply brilliant! This will be THE definitive work for years to come. Without a doubt a tour de force examination of the strategic importance of Bulloch on US geostrategic policy from the mid-19th century to present day.
